Director: Wendy Parmet, Matthews Distinguished University Professor of Law
In its 2020 graduate school rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked the law school #9 nationally for health care law. In large measure, this may be attributed to the productivity of a stellar group of faculty who specialize in various aspects of health law and policy. The law school has also launched two dual JD/MPH programs as well as health law concentrations in the JD, LLM and MLS programs. The center is creating synergies among the school’s curricular offerings as well as its Public Health Advocacy Institute, Domestic Violence Clinic and Public Health Legal Clinic. The center is busy hosting a wide range of lectures and discussions. In the coming years, under the guidance of Professor Wendy Parmet, the center’s founding director, Northeastern will host the largest annual conference of health law professors, attract new faculty and deliver white papers aimed at using law to promote public health.
